started to get dressed 

put on my usual clothes 

I put on 

frustrations 

worries 

problems 

and disappointments 

and my sunglasses just to be paradoxical 

and so bundled, I went outside.

Outside, my clothes seemed to itch me 

and they just seemed very heavy 

and I looked around 

and the trees hummed to each other 

asking when it will be their turn to flower 

and the air is tingled with anticipation and expectations 

and the wind caressed my face 

and I felt a warmth 

spreading from my toes to the tips of my hair 

and I laughed 

and stripped off all the clothes 

I had laboriously put on 

and I just wore my hopes.

The grey dawn spdrts a funeral air 

And you follow the misty day 

To its close 

Expecting to find a burst of black 

in procession behind a hearse. ; 

Instead 

One solitary mourner in navy and white 

Is placing a star of flowers 

On a lonely, isolated grave. 

As he turns away, 

One tear falls down his face -'^^ -■ i: 

And stains his mouth for a moment. ' --i^j 

Then, he almost grins 

As he walks away, back straight and proud. 

The dead watches. He, too, is proud. 

This is his son — son of life, born of the grave 

And he has taught him well 

How to turn your back on death and live. 

Now he closes his eyes and sleeps. 
Knowing he is safe in his place in history, 
Knowing he brought about 
The beginning of an era 
Rather than the end of one. 

And he sleeps, confident of a future awakening, 
Perhaps . . . tomorrow.

Once upon a time, a little girl named Pandora found a beau- 
tiful box left at her door. She was forbidden to open it and all 
day she wondered what was in it. 

One day, Pandora's curiosity got the better of her. She slowly 
opened up the box to take a peek inside. As she raised the lid, 
the room grew dark and dismal. It seemed as if a sudden swarm 
of winged creatures brushed past her, taking flight out of the 
box. Struggling, Pandora closed the lid. Then, a gentle tapping 
was heard from inside the box. Once more. Pandora opened it 
and a sweet little fairy flew out to explain the mysterious hap- 
penings. 

It seems that the box had contained the whole family of earth- 
ly troubles, sorrows, and cares. They had all been shut in the 
box so as not to inflict pain on mankind. To make amends for 
the swarm of ugly troubles, the little fairy had been placed in 
the box also. 

Now that trouble had come into the world, all that was left to 
create joy and happiness was this little, shining, figure. 

And if you haven't already guessed, the little fairy, the sav- 
iour of the world, was Hope . . .

Hope is a thing with feathers 

That perches in the soul, 

And sings the tune without the words 

And never stops at all. 

And sweetest in the gale is heard; 
And sore must be the storm 
That could abash the little bird 
That kept so many warm. 



I've heard it in the chillest land, 
And on the strangest sea; 
Yet, never, in extremity, 
It asked a crumb of me.

,,^^^^^^_^^^^^^^_^ lime 1970 

»ar Graduates, 
ilt is indeed a pleasure to greet the class of 1970 in the pages 

^thisfine Elchanette. 

|The four years you spent at Yeshiva have been years of tur- 

ilence and change. The changes — good and bad — have af- 
fected society and the world in general, and Israel and each of 
us in particular. We have all begun to think more, and to re- 
evaluate our way of life and our goals. 

You, too, have been involved in this change. In our long 
personal interviews (remember them?) I was most impressed 
with your keen insights, mature attitudes, and awareness of the 
world in which you live. Above all, I was happy to learn from 
you that we at Yeshiva have not failed in our responsibility to 
our faith and to our people. 1 have found a healthy and true 
religious attitude in your thinking. Questioning — true. Man 
was endowed with the ability to reason and explore — but, 
above all, we must always follow the dictum of istsn hkt» . 

As long as we are firm in our religious beliefs, we can ap- 
proach individual changes and world changes from a healthy 
and positive frame of reference. 

The future is yours. Whether in college or in later years, 
stand up for your beliefs; be strong; seek changes and im- 
provement — but always with the n«>p7>n of a mm n:i . 

Sincerely, 
Alvin Kamber

CALM: 

Pensive to my surroundings 

The deep blue summer sky at midnight 

Laclen with flickering stars- 
each telling their own story 

Dreaming^into a hazy future 

Reflecting— the clear woven pattern of 
time-memories 

A srriiie formed on my lips 

I cannot recall exactly why. 



Come live with me 

And run and stomp the ground 

Until it breaks. We'll play 

And laugh and build a bubble 

Full of dreams and rainbow colors 

And watch the merry-go-round 

Turn about. 

We'll shout and dance and feel the 

Wind make noises in 

Our faces . . . 

Smiling. 

Laughing. 

Crying. 

Come fly with me 

And sing and shout the echoes 

Unto Heaven. We'll talk 

And smile and wear our dreams 

Like silver 'bout our necks 

And play and run and feel the 

Clouds fall slowly 'pon the earth. 

We'll walk and jump and climb 

And ride the ferris wheel 

Of colors. 

(My dreams worth all eternity). 

Tomorrow 

And today. 

Come paint my Castle 

Blue or green or pink with me 

And be forever there 

My dreams and me, and 

Build my bubble high and 

Hear G-d's music box 

Of sound play softly on 

My ear 

And be forever there 

My dreams and me . . . 

My bubble burst today.

It doesn't matter that his name is Joe or that he has lived in a past I know nothing 
about for seven and a half years. All that does count is that he's here, in the hospi- 
tal, and I'm here to help him, or so I'm told. 

His lithe figure is scarred with bruises and cuts. Memories of an oncoming car 
flash constantly in front of his eyes and screams of the past pierce his ears. The 
halls reverberate when he rides down them at breakneck speed — in his wheelchair. 
And it hurts to see it because he is seven and a half, and he is a boy and he strains 
to walk and can't. And he does cry when he thinks no one is looking. 

He is still here a week later, but the wheelchair has become a weapon which he 
uses to lash out at anything that he thinks can hurt him. I find him crying. His back 
is to me and his tousled, black hair has begun to cling together from the wetness 
of his tears. I wanted to reach out and touch him, but he sensed my presence. 
Without a word, the tears stopped and as a "punishment" for seeing him vulner- 
able, he now backs away his wheelchair and rams it into me once, twice, with 
all of his force. 

Then he turns, and with the icy air of one so young and so hurt, he leaves me. 
And I am rubbing my shin. 

His arms are around me. The grubby fingers are pulling my hair and once or 
twice, with vengeful animosity, he pulls out a handful and throws it in my face. 
Then, holding back tears, he burrows his head into my shoulder and hugs me with 
ail his might. 

He is very old for his age. But, then again, he has been forced to grow up — now. 

He bit me. The dress is torn and he is screaming because he bit into a metal but- 
ton and it hurt. But shortly, the scream becomes hysteria until it gradually subsides 
into the gentle laughter of satisfaction. 

Then, Joe reaches out and plants a wet kiss on my right eye and, slithering out 
of my arms, goes back to racing his wheel chair. 
1 think I may love him. 

Avivah Herskovics.

yellowing smocks hung in ill-lit windows atop lucite boxes wearing 
anti-war posters gazed at by snub nosed hungry eyed children 
smirked at by look-alike couples lugging laundry and or pasty faced 
children indiscriminately past a fragrant smelling florist run by over- 
ambitious people who wrap you as you enter an old bundle of rags 
traipsed by and cried poppies he once gave me poppies.

The years go by so fast . . . seconds fly and min- 
utes race each other until they turn into hours 
and stretch into eons of time. Wrinkles come and 
beauty goes. Nothing remains but memories and 
pain . . . 

i don't remember meeting him for the first time 
so i don't know what my first impressions of him 
were, he was a neighborhood landmark; there 
ever since i can remember, when my mother 
would send me out alone to the grocery friends 
would caution me to beware of old torn, the 
toothless, grey-bearded, blue-eyed drunk, he was 
reputed to eat little children and in my neigfi^ 
borhood we spoke of him in hushed whispers — 
of his torn coat and broken shoes and we re- 
peated to one another the obscene words he 
used and the way he once stood up in the middle 
of the street and yelled at G-d, and how he 
smelled of something funny that he drank out of 
a small wrinkled brown paper bag that he always 
carried with him, and in the winter when my 
snowsuit failed to keep me warm, old torn would 
be shuffling down thfe street in an old brown coat 
revealing his brownish, dirty, weatherbeaten old 
back, and his grey stubble beard turning white 
and his nose turning red and he would sing ... in 
a high and low monotone his Irish eyes laughing 
at the world bowing gushingly to the women and 
sneering menacingly at the little girls trotting along 
next to their young aloof mothers, nobody ever 
dared talk to him — except barry. it was at the end 
of a late winter snow when the snow had already 
lost its white fairy-like beauty and was turning into 
a brown slush in the gutters and under people's 
feet, old torn was sitting on the curb laughing, 
wheezing and coughing, and as me and barry 
carefully detoured him with our sleds, he began 
singing happily some dumb song about what a 
beautiful morning it was and barry sang back bold- 
ly oh why don't you just shut up you bum and 
we slid away on our wooden sleds laughing and 
then barry told me this silly story that he heard 
from his mother about how old tom was going to 
be a priest and then something happened, but i 
wasn't really listening, i was looking back over my 
shoulder at old tom and wondering why in the 
world he was wiping his eyes on the sleeve of his 
old brown coat.

My life is ruled by a strange 

dogma 
An unprovable, impossible, intangible 

belief 
That has been repeated and repeated 
Until it is no longer "teaching" ,j 

Until it is an artti-individuaiist 

doctrine 
Until it has taken command of 

the youthful impulsiveness of 

my ideas 

my innocent untried expectations 

the very essence 

the originality 

of my existence 



',} 



I must believe 

I must not conform 

I must not ponder, wonder, question, doubt. 

For if I should dare 
For if I dare feel 

unauthorized feelings 
For if 1 dare think 

unapproved thoughts 
Then I am transformed 

— I am no longer a lamb 
I am a doubtful, dubious 
threatening, frightening 
RADICAL HERETIC 

But to see me, to understand me 
You would realize 

that all radical, excommunicated heretics 
are but wandering people 

searching people 

hoping hoping hoping until eternity 

to find an answer 



Rochelle Dauber 



Yesterday, I told you many things, 

little anecdotes from my childhood, 

a few of my dreams. 

We spoke of laughter and tears 

and of growing old. 

And then our conversation ended. 

But I still think of you 

and I wonder if you think of me. 

But don't think too hard, 

for you're holding the pieces of my puzzle 

and you might see the connection. 



I wonder now 

if it was wrong to give you the keys 

and to give you the choice 

of letting yourself in. 

For I know I can never thrust you out. 

And you'll always leave an indelible footprint 
and someday, when someone else comes along, 
he'll be hearing things you've already heard 
and it makes me sad. 

Shaindy Weg 




Give me a moment 

to think 

the thoughts often drowned with words, 

and drink 

the feelings that are only tasted. 

I need a minute to ponder 
what I've learned — 
some time to wander 
where hundreds have tread. 

lust now I'm worn 

from smiling at the unfunnies 

and feeling forlorn 

for someone else's trials. 

One moment please 
to have faith in what I believe; 
one moment please to grieve 
for what I think is sorrow. 

And then tomorrow 

I'll come back 

with a smile and a song . . . 

and I'll bring a little me along . . .

It is a carefree senior, 

And she stoppeth one she sees, 

"By your innocent face and worried look 

A freshie you must be." 



~"lhe cldssruum dours 
And I had best to run. 
The students are met, the lesson is set. 
If I am late, I'm done!" 

She holds her back and reassures, 
"Pay no heed to closing doors. 
To miss a class is no great crime. 
For you'll never hear a tale like mine 

The senior wins, the freshie gives i 
She cannot choose but hear. 
And listen like an eager child 
To the tale of the past four/fears. 



"The school year began, through the halls students ran. 

Merrily in we came. 

But freshies to a T and scared were we. 

As we learned the rules of the game. 

First came learning, then came tests. 

As freshies we had little rest. 

We put Miss Silver through wear and t^ar. 

She tried to give seros but would na^r dare. 

And then there came both matK'and Paley, 

Suited as well as an Arab and/fsraeli. 

Our first taste of algebra vyfs far from enticing, 

We learned about squaring and doubling and thricing. 

Running through the^chool was a notorious 'vendel'. 

It was just too mudirfor Jakie to 'hendel'. 

She almost lost tr^fck of the great Egyptian 'Svinks' 

It must have be^^n Bassel who pulled her through, methinks. 

Monsieur Mfirshal, with a tie that had a moral, 

Enjoyed a /aper more if its trimmings were floral. 

It must bij his nationalities that make him such a mench 

Those brave men from Egypt and those whole-souled Freri/th 



Israel 




Ranwams, Sfornos everywhere, 
To^erenholz's class brought much despair, 

lile across the hall with Rabbi Schorr, 
feacher and students found learning a bore. 

Now there's Mrs. Gottleib who wants to be our second mothe 
But after having her once, I'll stick with my other. 
On the first day with the A class she gave a big smile. 
And we realized we'd be with her for more than a while. 

For gory stories she had quite a knack. 

For every one you could tell her, she gave another two back. 

Yes, Mrs. Leiberman, we got cards in first aid, 

But the scene of an accident, we'd like to evade! 

Oh, science brought us many a woe. 
As we discovered Annie. 
Some thought Ressler was our foe. 
But not half as uncanny as Annie. 

Mr. Ressler made it known to all. 
That Tratner had the greatest gall, 
FHe prized himself and felt much bliss, 
Giving dots for that and dots for this. 



With linals and Regents on our mind, 



Whil ■ the six-day war began to flare, 



We a 



had trouble of another kind 



I united in silent prayer.

I envy your nostalgic streali 
Like someone who sadly depa/ts.

"Envy not, freshie, 

Nothing but

And for you it w;7/ be (he sat 



As sophs we climbed high, it was clear by and by, 
That we had but nothing to fear. 
Our spirits soared and the teachers roared, 
While Jotto became sport-of-the-year. 

New lockers are finally delivered to us. 

And with them our new neighbors cause much fuss. 

Fifteen-going-on-sixteen is our magical age, 

A boy for every girl becomes the latest rage. 

Zeva, whose tests we'll never forget. 
To take her picture, she'd never let. 
Little black bugs through microscopes^ 
Plus anthropods, auxins, amebas and/i 

Rabbi Schorr for history? This jusji'catrt be so! 
And thus we're struck with out/^er/first blow. 
For he's a great pal — it's a facf'we /an't hide 
But as for learning any history, torus it was denied. 
Oh, why all year with hinyhad «re clowned 
When for a Regents we vvere ^und? 

Feb.'s the time for tha'N.E.D/T. tests. 
It's only the first of gOr man* unwanted guests. 
In the competitive^ssembly, we try and succeed 
To improve on las/year's yiowing and take the lead. 

History's Mr. Coren witWhis weekly quizzes, 
Proved his poinl that we were no whizzes. 
And as Wilen teaches ahjbut may and might. 
We observe thet her clothes are out of sight.

Lest it contan inate Jakieand she'd catch your disease. 
Sophomore year brough\ changes for Bomzer and Friedman 
It seemed theiove she hap for them was now out of season. 

Then, from Scotland, we did get jovial Mr. Cantor, 
With a heart of gold and a ^iceless smile, he took all our banter. 
Nevertheless wall remember him as a man who brought much joy, 
A laughing, singilog, memorytclinging, grown-up little boy. 



|fnd then English 2 brings luck to some, 

, Ravetch of freshman year again has come. 
' jrtunate sophs with nothing much to do 
Li^rras he begins a sentence, asleep before it's through. 

Dr. ApDlB^um was better (as he would often say) 
We staybd dn our boxes or there'd be hell to pay. 
The gooa\DohoT taught us not to fight or resist, 
For he kneV all>and more he would insist. 

Geometry stilhouzzfes us, but thanks to Mr. Spin, 
Through slopes*end graphs and polygons, we'll bear it with a grin. 
Balancing rulers,Vjggliryc chalk and lending a witty word. 
Made him our favorite teacher, I'm sure you must've heard. 

Then there were day^to l.t^W. we'd tune in,

With Polonsky's face, you couldn't help ^ut stare. 

But as time went on, he lost hisVnagic touc 

Perhaps he couldn't teach, but \\s art talen\f were much. 

Gym's Mrs. Dessau, sweet as can be, 

Tried to teach us hygiene — one, tVvo, sree. 

Though her attendance sheets show that we W^re all there. 

For popping in and out, we had qiite a flair.

We lived through them all and were glad there's no more.

My soul sleeps and lies dormant, 
Awaiting the awakening embers of love 
Like a little bird waiting for its food. 
Kindness of friends touches me; but 
Your love shall lift my soul from sleep. 




The sun has set and the black 

Curtains of night have fallen into place. 
The sun shines no more on the 

Flowers that stand alone in the garden. 
The flowers, afraid of wind and 

Rain that descend upon them 
Lift their faces to the heavens and cry 

For mercy. 
The rain has stopped; the wind 

Has ceased its blowing. 
Gratefully, the flowers blow 

Kisses to the skies. 
. . . And the sun begins to shine. 

Malky Reichman 



when i saw you, i doubted myself 

you made me look so small 

insignificant 

next to your magnitude and beauty 



But you wanted me 

my joy was boundless 

wild 

we were one 




It was winter 

then it was spring 

yes, the spring of my life 

and you would want to make it summer 

i didn't know how rich the summer would be 

i wanted my spring 

so i left you 

though you loved me 

not knowing 

i loved you 



So, time passed 

Summer came without you 

you weten't there 

to make it rich 

and now i knew 

knew of love 

but too late 

you were gone 

now i search

** There is a moment in youth when small things are crowned in ominousness 
a and the great are clothed in flimsy sheets. * 

And we tremble in the dust 
While we trample on the good. 



But for a single voice, the world will go aright agai 
You... 

Will pluck the stars from out the night 

And plant them in my eyes. 

Every glance will be a vision 
And every word a poem.

And Europe toured one night.

ere I'll find the world.

Love, 

Daddy, Rita, & Bern ie 

in memory of 

Beloved wife and mother, 

Mrs. Helen Oster 



From 9:00 to 5:00, the day is dull and monotonous. Each 
class makes your eyelids droop a little lower. You want to 
talk to your friend and tell her about so-and-so who called 
last night but that's not allowed in class. Of course, your story 
could wait until lunch but then you're studying Nach, just in 
case Rabbi Rubel decides that today is your lucky day. Your 
whole life revolves around Algebra and Dikduk and you seem 
to be forever drowning in a sea of history dates (which, I sup- 
pose, are better than no dates at all!). Slowly you're becom- 
ing alienated from everything but your textbooks. You study 
and study but somehow there always seems to be one more 
chapter. You want to get to know the kids — you want to get 
caught up in the fuss and excitement that surrounds a high 
school, but from 9 to 5 it's clear; you are closed in. 

You start looking at the bulletin board, looking for things 
that will help bring you closer to others. "All those who want 
to try out for Boosters . . .", "Articles for the Flame due . . .", 
"Choir practice tonight . . .", "Dance rehearsals in the lunch- 
room . . .", "Sherut co-op open . . .", "H.S. Bowl team wins 
. . .". The list is endless and everyone wants to become a part 
of it. It's more than just being able to roll up your white cheer- 
leader skirt and jingle around the halls with your Booster pom- 
poms. It's more than the thrill of going to M.T.A. for a debate. 
It's even more than the excitement of inviting HIM to the 
Purim Operetta, "The Wall". 




■«■•• 




1 r 



when you get to know more about others, you get to know 
more about yourself. You're always donating a small part of 
"you". Together you're a bubbling fountain stirred with en- 
thusiasm. You never realize that this inter-dependence has 
been preparing you to be independent all the time; and when 
they hand you the world and say "shape it", the mold will be 
set in your mind. You don't realize it until you're wearing a 
cap and gown and marching down some campus on some 
avenue named Amsterdam. And isn't it ironic that when you 
stand there emptying out a locker for the last time, you learn 
to appreciate all the precious things it was filled with— all the 
precious things that four years were filled with.

t 




The highlight of the senior year was the Chanukah Chagiga. 
As clearly as you can see sunlight on a warm summer day, you 
can see direction on those rare, risked occasions when an 
event slips out of man-made plans and becomes a phenome- 
non, pulling order, unexpected, from chaos. So it was; so it 
will never be again. And though we face separation come 
this June, the conglomeration of ideas and ideals pieced to- 
gether through our high school willl bind us together. 

Of those involved in the publication of this yearbook, we 
tender our most sincere thanks to you, the seniors. You've 
furnished our book with the kind of memoirs it thrives on — 
pictures; laughing, singing, dancing pictures; pictures of girls 
creating, girls helping, girls cheering; taking on responsibili- 
ties; never sitting still — always moving, always active. Pictures 
are the springboard to imagination, the essence of creativity. 
Alive with joy and without affectation, they exist for the future. 





The song is youth, the 
hymn of life; sing it together 
and it becomes an anthem. 
A crush of people in a four- 
year-anguish that no one 
remembers with regrets. 
Spirit, they called it. 

If, by unconstrained in- 
volvement, young girls can 
imprison for a moment the 
shining, elusive element 
which is life itself, then per- 
haps therein lies hope for a 
world where hope seems as 
remote as tomorrow . . . 







I started to get dressed 

I put on my usual clothes 

I put on 

frustrations 

worries 

problems 

and disappointments 

and my sunglasses just to be paradoxical 

and so bundled, I went outside.

Outside, my clothes seemed to itch me 

and they seemed very heavy 

and I looked around 

and the trees hummed to each other 

asking when it will be their turn to flower 

and the air tingled with anticipation and expectations 

and the wind caressed my face 

and I felt a warmth 

spreading from my toes to the tips of my hair 

and I laughed ^
